PIM1 is a proto-oncogene that belongs to a family of serine/threonine protein kinases that are highly conserved through evolution in multicellular organisms. Originally identified from Moloney murine leukemia virus induced T-cell lymphomas in mice, PIM1 is involved in the control of cytokine-mediated cell proliferation, differentiation and survival of lymphoid and myeloid cells as well as others (1). Expression of PIM1 can be stimulated by a variety of growth factors and is regulated at four different levels: transcriptional, post-transcriptional, translational and post-translational (2). Expression of PIM1 is mediated through activation of the JAK/STAT pathway.
